Heading the Italian team Lampre-Caffita at the GP Città di Camaiore in Tuscany, Italy, on Thursday, August 4 will be Damiano Cunego, who has just recently become a father. "This wonderful event did not interfere with Damiano's training at all," said team manager Giuseppe Martinelli. "Rather, he has even intensified his sessions in the last couple of days." With Cunego, Martinelli will line-up Salvatore Commesso, Eddy Mazzoleni, Giuliano Figueras and Patxi Vila Errandonea, as well as two stagiaires: Matteo Bono and Morris Possoni, the latter who has just won the Giro delle Valli Cuneesi on Tuesday.
"I'm very happy for Possoni," Martinelli continued. "The race he has won is about the most important race for the U23 category in Italy and his success demonstrates his capacities. For him, it's a great achievement for his debut in the greatest category."
The GP Città di Camaiore will be raced over a distance of 200 km on a circuit route around the town, which includes six ascents of the Monte Pitoro climb.
Lampre's squad: Matteo Bono, Salvatore Commesso, Damiano Cunego, Giuliano Figueras, Eddy Mazzoleni, Morris Possoni, Daniele Righi, Andrea Tonti and Patxi Vila Errandonea.
